What system is the memory formatted in by the camera


I have a Z1285 which I believe has the same internal memory system as the Z12851.

The picture format is JPEG with a file extension of jpg.

When I connect it to my Linux PC, the file format appears to be FAT16.

If I remove the SD card and test it, I get the same result.

I assume the internal memory is formated with FAT16 as well.

This is what fdisk -l shows:

Disk /dev/sde: 1001 MB, 1001848320 bytes
32 heads, 63 sectors/track, 970 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 2016 * 512 = 1032192 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x11762d1b

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sde1 1 970 977728+ 6 FAT16

Hope this helps,

I can't find my hard drive. Where is is?


1) Depends on whether you are using an external or internal Hard disk drive
2) If it is external HDD, ensure that the USB cable is plugged into the PC for auto connectivity
3) If it is an internal HDD, You have to unscrew your metal case, look for the 3.5 inches in rectangular dimension metal device screwed onto your CPU casing. Ensure that there is a physical cable connection between the HDD to the Motherboard. The cable that will direct you to the HDD from the Motherboard should either be the SATA (Small Flat headed Red cable) or the IDE cable (white flat 24 pin cable)
On the HDD brand label there should be a Capacity size in MB or GB or TB, Cylinders, Heads and ensure that the poswer supply is connected to the HDD if it is an IDE HDD

Says 4gb not 250gb.


It sounds like your OS (windows XP+, I presume, as it's NTFS) is reading the wrong partition information from the hard disk.

Use this (free) partition software to delete all partitions on the external drive (and make VERY sure that it's pointing at the external, and not your main hard disk!).
http://www.partition-tool.com/personal.htm
...so delete all partitions; make a new one and see if that is 250 GB.
If yes, format.  Sorted.
If no, you could try editing the partition table directly with this:
ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/english_us_canada/tools/pq/utilities/PTEDIT32.zip
...you'll again have to be careful you're working on the right hard disk.  To use this, you'll need to know the number of heads, cylinders etc.  This data might be on a label on the disk (inside the external drive case), or you might be able to get it from the disk's manufacturer; either on their website or by emailing their tech support.

If editing the partition table doesn't work, or if the numbers keep reverting/changing, then it's highly likely that the hard disk is stuffed.  Only thing to do then is replace the hard disk in the external case (make sure you swap for the same type: IDE for IDE and SATA for SATA); or explore your warranty options.

Hope that helped.  Good luck!

What numbers off the HD do I use to set up the CMOS on the mother board under "User" hard drive?


Use automatic detection if it is available; if not use the following:

Size: Usually set automatically depending on the settings for heads, sectors, and cylinders.


Cylinders: The number of cylinders on hard disk. Should be written on drive.


Heads: Number of heads. Should be written on drive.


Write precompensation: Not much used on modern drives. It was used to accomodate drives that had the same number of sectors per track, including both the inner and outer tracks. On SCSI drives

, set this to -1. On IDE drives, it is not necessary to worry about it as it will be determined automatically.


Landing zone: Used for drives that don’t have auto-parking. All modern drives do, so just set to 0.


Sector: Number of sectors per track. It’s often 17 for MFM drives, and 26 for RLL drives.

Quantium 10.2 gb fireball CX10A011 specs. ie sectors, mode, etc.


The specifications to enter the information manually, are on top of the harddrive. Kind of hard to discern, huh? That's because harddrive sizes from 6.4GB through 20.4GB are listed on top.
C/H/S = Cylinders/Heads/Sectors
The Quantum Fireball CX10A011 hardrive is a 10.2GB harddrive.
You will see -> C/H/S....10.2 - 16383/16/63 on top.

That is ,
16,383 Cylinders
16 Heads
63 Sectors

As for the 40GB model, it should be similar. If not, come back and post.
